Opel Zafira Tourer with new diesel engine announced for Geneva image

Opel has recently announced its plans to introduce the Zafira Tourer, equipped with a new diesel engine, next month, during the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.

According to the German based automaker, the Opel Zafira Tourer in question will get the next generation diesel engine made by the company which is promising to blend performance and fuel efficiency. The unit is getting a BlueInjection SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system to reduce the CO2 emissions and something called “closed-loop combustion control”.

The new diesel engine which will make its way under the hood of the Opel Zafira Tourer next month, during the Swiss automotive event, will be a 1.6 liter CDTI, which will produce a total output of 136 HP (100 kW) and it will have a peak torque of 320 Nm (236 lb-ft). This will be enough to allow the model to reach a top speed of 193 km/h (120 mph). The Opel Zafira Tourer is burning an average of 4.1 liters every 100 km (68.8 mpg UK / 57.3 mpg US) and it’s emitting 109 g/km of CO2. The engine will replace the 1.7 liter and the 2.0 liter diesel units and it will eventually become available on other models made by Opel. More details on it will be announced in Geneva.
